Travel insurance

It is advisable to take out your travel insurance at the time of booking your trip as cover will commence for pre-departure cancellation from the policy issue date. This will therefore provide cover should you have to cancel your trip for an insured reason such as illness or serious accident.

I strongly recommend that you and all members of your party are adequately insured, providing financial protection against unforeseen circumstances. Cover should include medical expenses, as well as repatriation, in the event of accident or illness. In addition, I strongly recommend that you have cover for personal belongings, delay at your outward or homeward point of departure, personal liability, overseas legal expenses and cancellation. If you are undertaking any sports or adventurous activities on your trip, including trekking, you should also make sure that your policy covers these. Please also ensure you read the policy conditions and exclusions.

Physical Fitness Considerations

The difficulty of this tour can be classified as easy and it is suitable for people of all ages.

There will be long transfers by cars and along winding mountain roads on uneven terrain and some off-road driving, therefore it is not recommended for people who have serious back problems or suffer from motion sickness.

The maximum altitude we will reach is about 2,000m.

Temperatures in this season vary from around 0C at night on the mountain to the high 20C’s during the day on the plains.
